Warm and Welcome

Gloucestershire Libraries will be offering a free, warm and welcoming spaces in local communities across the county. Not all libraries are the same but all libraries will provide a basic offer that meets the requirements of the Warm and Welcome scheme.

Libraries are traditionally a place where people can go without judgement or cost, therefore we will continue to offer our usual services alongside the below.


We are offering

  • Warm, dry buildings with spaces to sit and keep warm
  • Free access to the internet and wi-fi
  • Places to charge your devices
  • Signposting to advice and support
  • Free activities such as homework help, knit and natter, library clubs

As temperatures are improving, we will be removing our free warm drink winter offer from Monday 22 May.
